For a number of months I have been focusing on my running and cycling, that has meant neglecting my standard BMF sessions. Whilst attending said standard BMF session, there came a time to do some planks and side planks. Continue reading “Why your core is important?”

I read a post by Mark Manson that said there are 2 approaches to improving yourself-
1) The self-improvement junkie. The junkie has this constant gnawing feeling that there’s still some magic tip or technique or piece of information out there that will create their next big breakthrough Continue reading “How do you use Self Help?”
Track 29 – I Write Sins Not Tragedies – Panic at the Disco(2006)
There is not many rock tunes on this list, if any. It’s not that I’m just an old school house head. It’s trying to find good rock tunes to run to. I’ve been through plenty of bands, but most songs are not quick enough or at least not quick enough for me and this playlist. Continue reading “The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 29”
One of my first posts on this blog was about the Imposter syndrome (I now know it should be called a “phenomenon”, not a syndrome).
The imposter phenomenon is that however experienced or successful you are, there’s always the doubt and feeling at one day the fraud police will tap you on the shoulder and tell you that you’ve been found out and they know that you don’t know what you’re doing.

Late last year British Military Fitness (BMF) was rebranded to Be Military Fit (BeMF). The Bushy Park BMF regulars and I thought nothing of it. Some new vans, some new bibs. Nothing’s going to change and we’ll all carry on as normal. Continue reading “Going back to BMF – now Be Military Fit (BeMF)”
Track 27 – Only Human – KH (aka Four Tet)
Again, I’m not entirely sure how I can across this track, but it was only a few months ago. Most probably YouTube. This is under Four Tet’s pseudonym, KH. Four Tet is an English musician and prominent remixer, who recently wowed people at Alexandra Palace, London with his gig and light show. Continue reading “The Awesome Running Playlist – Track 27”
My friends and I have planned and booked a trip to the French Alps. Well, they did really, I had little input into planning and booking rather that just saying I wanted to go. It will consist of 3 days of cycling up and down big and famous French Alpine passes. Quite an endeavour.
On Monday this arrives on the WhatsApp group
“Having been out with most of you over the past 3 weeks I think we’ve got some work to do. As Nick pointed out Day 2 of our ride is 120km and nearly 4000m of climbing. As it stands I think 3 of us will be able to cope with it”.
Track 26 – Mo Money Mo Problems – The Notorious B.I.G. featuring Puff Daddy, Kelly Price and Mase (1997)
This is one of my all-time favourite tunes and an excellent party track. The upbeat-ness of the tune makes it a great running track. Much of this is down to the genius of the Chic duo Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers and their hook written for the Diana Ross classic “I’m Coming Out”.
